Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) is also the object of Biden’s ridicule
Joe Biden is not happy and is blaming Arizona democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema for his angst. She shares the blame with West Virginia democrat Joe Manchin. While Biden didn’t specifically name them, it was clear the duo is on the receiving end of his ire as he insinuated they align themselves more with Republicans than their own party.
“I hear all the folks on TV saying, ‘Why doesn’t Biden get this done?’” he asked, narcissistically referring to himself by his own last name. “Well, because Biden only has a majority of effectively four votes in the House and a tie in the Senate, with two members of the Senate who vote more with my Republican friends.”
Biden appeared to be alluding to the democrat election rigging scheme known as H.R.1 consisting of nearly 900 pages, that would, among other things, expand mail-in and early voting and require automatic voter registration, while restricting rights.
First, let’s cut to the chase. Compliant Biden doesn’t have Republican friends. He obediently takes his marching orders from Barack Obama, who recently admitted that the Biden administration was a continuation of his own, as reported in the Washington Examiner.
Arizonans don’t mistake Sinema for a conservative, despite the fact that she has steadfastly rejected leftwing calls to end the Senate filibuster.
“When you have a place that’s broken and not working, and many would say that’s the Senate today, I don’t think the solution is to erode the rules,” Sinema said. “I think the solution is for senators to change their behavior and begin to work together, which is what the country wants us to do.”
That’s a fact.
Arizona does have a precedent for a party switching member of Congress. Democrat Bob Stump served four terms in the Arizona House of Representatives from 1959 to 1967, followed by five terms in the Arizona State Senate from 1967 to 1976, where he was President of the Senate. He was first elected to congress in 1976 as a democrat. After voting for Pres. Reagan’s tax cuts in in 1981, he announced his party switch to Republican. U.S. Rep. Stump remained popular, and continued to win by wide margins, until his retirement in 2000.
